The work of the Global Network for Climate Solutions is overseen by two distinct global project Boards, one for the Mitigation Program and one for the Adaptation Program. Each is comprised of leading experts in their respective fields, whose deep knowledge and understanding help us to create novel and robust approaches. The roles of the Boards are quite different, as solutions in the two areas require different kinds of actions and activities. In the initial stages of the project, both Boards support the development of common methodologies to present and facilitate comparison of various strategies, plans, and policies regarding climate change mitigation and adaptation. Expertise from the Boards is country-specific, while simultaneously encompassing the global context of climate change.
The Adaptation Board draws expertise from global leaders in climate risk management, disaster risk reduction, adaptation and development communities from around the world. Board members support Developing Country Institute partners in developing adaptation solutions and strategies. With its collective knowledge and experience, the Adaptation Board serves to enhance the integration of the best available science and expertise into locally developed solutions. The Board’s guidance also helps to ensure systematic presentation and comparison of adaptation challenges that is flexible enough to capture complex local realities.

The Mitigation Board comprises leading mitigation experts from around the world, with strong representation of all major emitting countries and regions. The Board assists in the development of a Mitigation Plan Template, while network members provide data to fill out the template. The resulting Mitigation Plans are at the scale of one country, with an emphasis on specific sectors, technologies, and gases. Click here to see a list of Mitigation Board members.
